High Altitude Instructions are a recipe for failure

High Altitude Instructions are a recipe for failure

DO: add the extra flour, alter the amounts of oil and water as indicated in the high altitude instructions. DO NOT: Bake at 375 unless you intend to use the finished product as a weapon (i.e., blunt instrument) DO: Bake for the length of time that is recommended. BONUS TIP: Add a fourth egg. This will compensate for the issues with a sunken cake center - even when using 8 inch rounds.

Crystallized honey tip

Crystallized honey tip

While crystallized honey is completely safe to eat, you may want to make it liquid again for pouring. Here’s how: 1. Make sure the lid is on tight. 2. Place the honey jar in a container that allows water to move around it freely. 3. Run under a hot water tap (shaking occasionally) until the crystals have melted.
